red mail PROVO
I'm wondering if anyone knows anything of, or has ever heard of, the Provo family that lived in Dartmouth, Devon? The family rumour is that they fled to England from France during the French Revolution, and that they were rather rich. My grandmother can remember her second great aunt Louise/Louisa Provo, but I have never come across this person in all of my research ??? I'm really interested in tracing my French roots. I know that French middle names like Lefevre and Minett were common in our family, so I believe the French connection does exist; but I've no idea when or where it comes in. My guess is that it would appear towards the late 1790s. I would be really grateful for any insight or advice at all. Thank you

My 3GG Richard Norrish was a private in the 96th Foot. He came to Australia in abt 1842 with his wife Honora Regan b abt 1811 in Bandon, Cork. They were married in Cork inSeptember 1834. Richard b April 1812 in Chelsea Middlesex is stated to be the son of Dr Richard Norrish of Devon. I have searched his army records and there are no parents listed. The name Elsworthy crops up several times in his descendants. All my searches have failed to identify Richards parents. Any information welcome.
